ONCE in a while, something very special comes to the market; 'Burragum' is such a property.

This architecturally designed home nestles perfectly on the saddle of a ridge-line overlooking the lush pastures of the Hannam Vale Valley.

Here you can enjoy awe-inspiring views to Middle Brother and South Brother Mountains, and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. With no roads on any of the boundaries, seclusion in nature is all yours here.

The late local architect Ian Bailey and a team of local builders created this home which helped pave the way for future house design.

The home won a commendation from the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW), and in 2011 it won the energy efficiency and environmental sustainability award from the Master Builders Association.

Of the home, the judges said:

"This home provides a demonstration of how comfortable sustainable living can be achieved, without compromising on any of the standards and features associated with modern living".

Upon entry, you will be immediately captivated by the quality of the finishes, such as the polished hardwood floors and the high-set ceiling.

The light-filled lounge and dining area blends seamlessly with a modern well-equipped kitchen which breaks away to multiple decks.

The bedrooms feature windows that frame the landscape like artwork.

The entire property is fully fenced with two-metre-high hinged joint deer fencing. Boasting 17 hectares of land, balanced between natural forest and pastures. The topography includes slopes to near level pastures with ample water from two dams.

The paddocks are fenced into three separate grazing areas and come with cattle handling facilities.
